Alex Lee, instructor in Muay Thai, will make his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) debut tonight at Asia World-Expo. The nine-bout Legends IV event will see the 28-year-old from Tsuen Wan up against Mark Eddiva, 24, of the Philippines in a featherweight (66kg) clash. The Hong Kong-based promotion aims to build a stable of MMA fighters. The main event is a rematch between South Korea's Nam Yui-chul and Queenslander Adrian Pang, whose fight at the inaugural Legends ended in a draw. Five mainland fighters will also showcase their skills.
